'I voted' stickers presented to Susan B. Anthony Museum

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC-TV) - Last Tuesday, News 8’s John Kucko used Facebook Live to broadcast from Mount Hope Cemetery, at Susan B. Anthony's gravesite.

Thousands left their "I voted" stickers, as millions more watched it unfold on social media.

We asked viewers on our page who weren’t from the Rochester area to send in their stickers, so we could then deliver them to the Susan B. Anthony House and Museum.

So far, we received letters from 12 different states, and from cities as far-flung as Atlanta to Seattle – and more arrive each day.

We presented the letters we’ve received so far to Museum Executive Director Deborah Hughes this morning.

"It's been amazing, actually. Last Saturday was our busiest Saturday, ever,” Hughes said. “We had to call all the staff in to come in and help the volunteers for tours – and that's after the election. So people are still making the connection, still making the journey, coming and sharing their stories."

The museum will enter their stickers as part of their official archives. They expect to continue to see a rise in attendance over the next several days.
